Video game challenges are things that have existed since shortly after video games. Now I hear you saying “But Freakshow what’s the point?” Well dear reader, I’ll tell you. You know that copy of your favorite game you’ve beaten a million times? Maybe you can do something to make it harder on yourself. It could be no healing items, only using starting equipment, or even not leveling up. Something to give it that extra little edge so you have a challenge to make it harder. You’ll fall in love with it all over again. Who doesn’t like to overcome a challenge, right?
Frantic and Grunt discuss Mario’s nipple controversy, violent video games in the Olympics, and Destiny 2 Clan Features.
Hello Frantic Talks readers and welcome to Frantic vs Freakshow! In this series we have taken the TEW game (which is used in our Chronicles of AWE series) and created a roster for Frantic Talks Wrestling which include not only some Attitude Era WWE wrestlers but also some modern day names you’ll probably recognize.
Well, hello everyone. We’re finally starting to come out of our Destiny 2 coma that we have been in for the past week or so, meaning you should start seeing some normalcy return to these articles. Anyways, my grumblings for this week are partially inspired by a conversation I was part of with a few friends as well as experience from my years participating in online gaming communities. I see it happen quite often and it is something that I don’t think should happen as often as it does, nor at all. What is it then? The fact that others seemingly like hating on things others really enjoy for the simple reason of, they don’t like it.
Frantic, Grunt, and Freakshow discuss the newly released Destiny 2 and their first impressions.
Frantic, Grunt, and special podcast ghost Freakshow discuss their memories of Destiny together.
When I was a wee lad I enjoyed many things the 90s had to offer: Power Rangers, Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, and most importantly the WWF. Leave it to Freakshow to get me back into professional wrestling full-force with a free trial to the WWE Network.
Games can be artful. That is something I have already written an article about and have preached in numerous posts over on my own blog before. So to some extent I feel like I’m going to be beating a metaphorical dead horse with this post. However, after working on my own narrative that I hope to use as a backdrop for a D&D and Dread campaign it made me think that a lot of work goes into creating a game world and a decent amount of it barely gets noticed by players.
